Our Services At 123 Kerrisdale Dental Centre
We have taken dental medicine to an entirely different level by adding a professional aesthetic factor to each procedure at our Vancouver dental clinic. More than providing general dental services, we have made the extra effort to make sure each treatment adds a certain brilliance to your smile. Whether you have teeth discoloration, missing teeth, chipped teeth, or other dental problems that not only restrict your teeth from functioning well but prevent you from giving an all-out smile, our quality services can help you make your smile look more beautiful.
Here at 123 Kerrisdale Dental Centre, we use laser dentistry for hard and soft tissue procedures. Laser dentistry can be used for soft tissues (gums) and hard tissues (teeth) and is a good option for patients who have a fear of dental drills and needles. Because lasers do not make whirring or whining sounds, you should be able to relax during your dental treatment. There are several other advantages to laser dentistry, including:
- No drills, no shots, no pain!
- Less discomfort during gum treatments
- Hard tissue laser dentistry results in faster composite curing and harder composites, which makes your teeth stronger
- No cutting or stitches during gum surgery, which results in less bleeding and promotes healing
- Less post-operative discomfort and swelling
- Laser dentistry reduces or eliminates the need for anesthesia
- Hard tissue laser dentistry preserves more tooth structure during cavity removal
Here at our practice, we utilize the Kavo Key Laser 3 and the DIAGNOdent® laser.
If your teeth are stained and discoloured and have lost their lustre, our teeth whitening procedures can give you a brighter, whiter and more brilliant smile. Our professional whitening treatment is highly customized and our whitening agent is carefully matched according to your specific smile needs. Contact 123 Kerrisdale Dental Centre and whiten your smile to a brilliant shade in as little as one hour.
If missing teeth are holding you back from living your life to the fullest, our dentures could be your ideal smile solution. If a missing tooth or teeth are not replaced as soon as possible, your remaining teeth could shift into a poor bite, affecting your speech and ability to chew properly, and giving your face a sagging appearance. Dentures are very similar in appearance to natural teeth and are a durable, comfortable and functional solution for lost or missing teeth.
If a partial denture can’t work as a solution for you, a dental implant can save your smile. A dental implant is a titanium screw that’s placed inside your jaw/gum and functions as an artificial tooth root. Titanium is a bio-compatible material and your dental implant will look and feel just like your natural teeth. Dental implants are safe, secure and durable.
A dental restoration or filling can restore the shape and function of a chipped or broken tooth or any tooth that requires cavity removal. Modern dental restorative techniques and technologies have made fillings relatively quick and painless procedures that restore your smile and your self-confidence.
Cosmetic dentistry enables us to give people smiles they’re proud to show off. In addition to bringing teeth back to their natural health and functionality, cosmetic dentistry creates smiles that positively impact our patients’ personal and professional lives as well as their self-confidence.
We offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions at 123 Kerrisdale Dental Centre to give you the smile of your dreams.
Fight Oral Cancer
Oral Cancer can be a potentially deadly type of cancer but if detected early, the survival rate for patients with oral cancer is 83%.
Late detection of oral cancer, however, gives patients only a 32% chance of survival.
What is the VELscope System?
The VELscope is a safe and revolutionary handheld device that shines a blue light and highlights abnormal oral tissue and lesions that could indicate oral cancer. VELscope doesn’t use any dyes or rinses and is completely non-invasive and pain-free.
How Long Does a VELscope Exam Last?
A VELscope exam will typically take no more than 5 minutes and has no side effects. In this short time, your oral health care professional can investigate any abnormal oral tissue and help prevent not just oral cancer but fungal infections and bacterial growth.
Book Your VELscope Appointment
Early detection is Key in the fight against oral cancer so contact our friendly dental staff and book your VELscope appointment for your peace of mind and excellent oral health. Please feel free to ask us any questions about VELscope, online or on the phone.
We look forward to seeing you!
